One personmight cross the bridge and the vibration might respondto the footstep, but there are no limitations as to thenumber who may venture upon it at one time. Onestarts out and reaches the center, new visitors arrive andin their new enthusiasm rush onto the end and immedi-ately the whole structure is careening and billowing as ifit resented the action of the thoughtless. The guide books say that the bridge was constructedby an inventive Frenchman who wandered through thecanyon on a hunting expedition and as it was within easydistance of Vancouver saw the possibilities of theplace as an amusement park if thrills were providedfor visitors. This is incorrect, however, and when I Capilano (]anyon Suspension Bridgt Text Appearing After Image: Vancouvers Side-Trips 133 heard the true story of its building and saw a strangebunk-house of hand-hewn cedar planks that have aged toRembrandt browns, I thought I was on the scent of justsuch a human story as such a place should have. Thereis gossip that a white man once wandered into thiscanyon, that he fell in love with an Indian girl who re-turned his affection; she was thro,»(n out of her tribe andhe felt •that he could not return to his people, takingwith him his wilderness soul-mate. So they went tothe top of this canyon and the man built the home fromwhich they could look down on the turbulent waters andthe ravine which both of; them loved. I thought of anAmerican Madam Butterfly, or Madam Chrysan-theme — did the white man remain faithful to the Indianmaid and did they end their lives here together? Justby chance was there a tragic ending to their existencehere together? There was the yawning chasm in thewilderness and I could fancy a dozen climaxes tosuch an adventure.
